This course covers the mathematical topics most directly related to computer science. Topics include: logic, relations, functions, basic set theory, countability and counting arguments, proof techniques, mathematical induction, graph theory, combinatorics, discrete probability, recursion, recurrence relations, and number theory. Emphasis is placed on providing a context for the application of the mathematics within computer science. The analysis of algorithms requires the ability to count the number of operations in an algorithm. Recursive algorithms in particular depend on the solution to a recurrence equation, and a proof of correctness by mathematical induction. The design of a digital circuit requires the knowledge of Boolean algebra. Software engineering uses sets, graphs, trees and other data structures. Number theory is at the heart of secure messaging systems and cryptography. Logic is used in AI research in theorem proving and in database query systems. Proofs by induction and the more general notions of mathematical proof are ubiquitous in theory of computation, compiler design and formal grammars. Probabilistic notions crop up in architectural trade-offs in hardware design.

How can i download materials. Please help me out
Subject: Course 02: Discrete Mathematics (Arsdigita University)
Kindly tell how to download this lecture...
how can i download this?
Subject: A good material
Thank you so much.
Subject: Very Good Course
Shai is a good intructor and teaches the material in a fun way.
I found a truth table tester that may help you train the concepts from lecture 1. It is in German but that shouldnt matter for that topic.
Here is the url http://www.uni-due.de/~gph120/wahrheitstafeln/ .
Subject: its a greeeeeeeeeeeeet work
thanks for giving a valuable informaaaaaaaaaaaation
Subject: Great refresher
Wish I had knew this site before I took this class, but I downloaded it since my professor didn't cover half this stuff.
Subject: video lectures are really good
video lectures are really good. I am so glad to find them here.
